Abstract. This paper presents a new approach for real time detection and track-
ing of human hands and faces in image sequences. The proposed method builds
upon our previous research on color-based tracking and extends it towards build-
ing a system capable of distinguishing between human hands, faces and other
skin-colored regions in the image background. To achieve these goals, the pro-
posed approach allows the utilization of additional information cues including
motion information given by means of a background subtraction algorithm, and
